Zero-cost futures in Rust:
Google’s QUIC protocol: moving the web from TCP to UDP:
My skills are officially obsolete. I know HTTP 1.1 and TCP pretty well. I really need to understand the details of HTTP 2.0 and QUIC beyond the high-level architecture. I don't want to become a dinosaur who only knows UUCP or XNS. I've often wondered what it feels like to be an old, but still working programmer. This is probably part of it.
This is a wonderful guide on how to be a thoughtful collaborator. Except for the "Before you get hired" section, almost all of the advice applies to non-remote (local?) working as well.
Really cool library for working with time series in Python. See this Jupyter notebook for some compelling examples. I'm happy to see it works with Python 3 and is built on NumPy, SciPy, and Pandas.
What’s New in C# 7.0:
I surprisingly enjoyed using C# last year after ignoring it for years. It appears that the language is getting even more features with the next release. I don't think that's a good thing; some of what they're introducing seems overly complicated (e.g., out variable declarations).
